UPDATE: 'No more applications': Local organization says they're overwhelmed by the amount of people who want to foster Golden Retrievers
G.R.I.N, a local organization that rescues Golden Retrievers, is running out of space at their facility and is calling for anyone who can to become a foster parent to a Golden Retriever.
The organization says it has a seen an explosion in the number of dogs that need foster homes. Many of the dogs that come into the facility are puppy mill survivors, 58 of which have come in since the beginning of the year.
G.R.I.N. says they are expecting six more dogs this week.
"Frankly we are at a point that we are going to have to start turning dogs away. That is certainly not a place we want to be in, but we cannot take dogs into our care that we do not have fosters for," the organization said in a Facebook post.
The dogs need quiet homes with foster parents who are willing to be patient with them as they learn to become a member of the family.
To be a foster for G.R.I.N., you must live in the organization's service area and go through the foster/adoption process. Click here for a full list of dogs available for adoption.
